History True Son of Liberty

I promised myself I’d stay away from Slog on my vacation, but eat your hearts out true patriots:
So, I’m in Boston, and over the weekend I saw the famous battlegrounds at Lexington and Concord where the Revolutionary war started. The “Shot heard around the world” …
And I also went to the site of the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party. The Boston Tea Party museum was actually closed for renovations, but me and my revolutionary friends ducked under the “Do Not Enter” barricade, walked out to the site over the harbor and dumped some Starbucks coffee down into the water.
But here’s the thing: It turns out that today, March 5, 2007 is the 237th anniversary of the Boston Massacre and—there’s a reenactment tonight! Who knew?
I am psyched. Heading back down now.
